Degrees of Deceit
Online Degrees " Its a Scam"

International University of America,London
"Beware".
I was shocked to learn that anyone can purchase a degree, Bachelor’s or Master’s from online dubious universities without having to complete the course of study for as much as 3000 pound sterlings.
Some of our unscruplous politicians grabbed this golden opportunity and bought their way into the august house such as National Assembly of Pakistan.
Corruption is always linked to third world countries like Pakistan. however, In this "SCAM" of selling fake degrees, entities belonging to countries like USA, Canada, UK & Great Britain are involved.
International University of America is one of such dubious online university conferring degrees to individuals without verifying their previous record of education. IUA has issued Bachelors degrees to people who have not even finished high school.
IUA claims that they are operating in Australia, Great Britain, Canada and USA, it is further claimed by this university that degrees awarded by them are recognised/accredited by the departments of education in all of the above mentioned countries, which is totally misleading and incorrect.
Some of the Parliamentarians have alreday been disqualified for producing dubious/fake degrees acquired from such universities and casesw of others are being proceeded in the Election Tribunals constituted by the Election Commission of Pakistan.
IUA does not exist in the United States of America, Canada and Australia. It was operating from a flat in London but since the official inquiry has begun, IUA has shut down their operation and moved from their previous address. IUA has also closed their web site to avoid legal repercussions.
The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan too does not recognise this university or qualifications awarded by them.
This article is purely in public interest so that innocent education seekers are not robbed and fraudsters brought to the book.

Dacoits free 20 hostages, 2 remain in captivity
SUKKUR The law-enforcement agencies after a four-day struggle succeeded in getting released 20 hostages, including three women and two minor girls, on Sunday. Sources in Guddu told The News that the release of the hostages took place after hectic negotiations -- with the permission granted by IGP Sindh Rana Maqbool Ahmed.
The IGP is encamped at Guddu for the last four days and some influentials of the area, including MPA Saleem Jan Mazari, Mir Sunder Khan Sundrani, Mir Hakim Ali Sundrani, Khalid Bharchundi, Jan Muhammad Loher, Deedar Khoso and others, participated in the negotiations.
Sources said that the dacoits had placed their terms and conditions for the release of the dacoits. A source close to the negotiators told The News that the dacoits demanded the release of Ghulam Rasool Shaikh alias Commando, who was in jail and allegedly involved in the kidnapping of the Japanese engineers.
However, the IGP -- who was supervising the operation -- told The News on telephone that the hostages were released under tactical pressure of the police during the last four days. He said in the past the police had failed to apply professional tactics. He said that the operation would continue till the recovery of every hostage. Those responsible persons would be arrested dead or alive, he added.
According to police officials, they gave the dacoits assurance that cooperation would be extended to them. The dacoits first demanded ransom and also the release of Commando Shaikh, but the IGP turned it down. He said that if the hostages were not released, a major operation would be launched which would cause irreparable loss to them.
Accordingly, the dacoits released the hostages in groups. First the family of Hindus was released in a boat near Nagwah, Ghotki district, and two hostages in all were released in small groups of four or five hostages at different sites. Now only four hostages were in the custody of the dacoits. It is expected that they will be released in the night or by early Monday morning.
However, the IG contradicted any precondition. It is known that Kamal Faqir Shaikh was leading the gang of 50 dacoits, who were engaged in committing heinous crimes in the area. Police had been launching operations in the area in the past, but failed to overcome them.
The hostages recovered were identified as Haq Nawaz s/o Akram Pathan, Maher Khan s/o Muhammad Aslam, Ghulam Rasool s/o Allah Rakhio, Mir Aslam s/o Shah Khan Khattak, Khudadad Khan s/o Khudai Rahim, Ashfaq Hussain s/o Nisar Hussain, Muhammad Irfan s/o Sarwar Khan, Daresh Mal, Rekha w/o Ashok Kumar, Sania d/o Ashok Kumar, Sapna d/o Nanak Ram, Sheela w/o Inder Lal, Priyanka d/o Inder Lal, Ghulam Nabi s/o Ghulam Rasool, Ghulam Abbas s/o Koro, Muhammad Khan s/o Mohsin Khan, Muhammad Sharif s/o Ahmed Shah.

Saleem Jan Mazari’s degree challenged
By our correspondent
SUKKUR: A Pakistan People’s Party-Parliamentarian (PPPP) leader on Friday challenged the graduation degree of Saleem Jan Mazari, an MNA from Kashmore in Jacobabad district.
Imran Khan Bijarani, a member of the PPPP’s central committee, said that he had sent a memorandum to the Election Commission of Pakistan, in this regard. Addressing a press conference here on Friday, he said that along with the memorandum, he had also sent a letter from the concerned authorities in the USA, UK, and Australia that there was no university named the International University was registered in the education sector in the USA, UK or Australia; therefore it could not issue any degree.
He said that it was also verified from all the cities and the education department of Pakistan that such a university had been never registered with the education department. He said that after such verification, Saleem Jan Mazari, who claimed himself a graduate of that university, had no right to sit in the national assembly. Bijarani demanded of the Election Commission of Pakistan to cancel the membership of Mazari and conduct by-election for the seat.

Persecution in Pakistan
Living in fear
By Imdad Soomro
24 Apr 2003
The Hindu communities in Sindh are victims of the terrible law and order situation which remains under the control oflocal influentials, writes Imdad Soomro.
Khahi, a city near Shikarpur, once a business hub of the Hindu community in Sindh, is now deserted. "The city was known for its flourishing business of cotton and cloth materials, when the local businessmen used to trade with the neighbouring cities of Jacobabad and Sukkur," reminisced an 80-year-old resident of the area. Along with this one time peaceful city there are many others nearby, inhabited by the Hindu community, which have lately been targeted by dacoits, patharidars and robbers, forcing most to leave their ancestral homes and property for safer areas.
For the residents of upper Sindh, especially Hindus, these are terrible times. In the hub cities of this community - Jacobabad, Thul, Kashmore and Shikarpur - you will find a majority of the community all set to leave their native cities. "Most of us want to shift to bigger cities now," says Bacha Ram Sewhani, a naib president of the Hindu panchayat Jacobabad. He was robbed a week ago in the middle of the city. Having lived for centuries in Sindh, the Hindu community now feels victimized. "Only in the last four months, some 25 people of our community have been kidnapped in the Thul, Kashmore and Kandhkot talukas of Jacobabad district," says Ramesh Laal, a rice mill owner.
For safety, the Hindu business community living in these areas relies on, and is at the mercy, of the sardars. It was disclosed that the Hindu businessmen pay dunn (a sort of ransom) to the influential sardars of the area. "We have no other way of protecting ourselves except to pay dunn to the sardars of several tribes," confessed Laal.
In Thul, almost 80 per cent of the business conducted by Hindus is carried out in collaboration with the sardars. Many sardars also receive financial assistance from Hindu seths during elections, this serves as a reciprocity that also ensures their security.
Last year, a Hindu seth Ashok Kumar of Rohri was kidnapped by a dozen dacoits and released only after a deal was struck with an influential of the area. "We possess no weapons, and have no strong baradari (tribe). How can we be protected without the cooperation of local sardars?" questioned a young Hindu seth who wishes to remain anonymous.
Though the law and order situation has affected everyone living in the area, it is particularly bad for the Hindu community because it has left their homes and businesses vulnerable. "They are both socially and financially insecure," says Eshaware Laal, president of the Hindu panchayat in Sukkur. But he sees hope and feels optimistic about the joint electorate system. "We will have elected representatives who will surely address the grave dangers we are facing," he adds.
The first shocking incident of kidnapping occurred in the year 2000 near Kashmore, in which 12 women including two from the Hindu community, were kidnapped by the gang of the notorious dacoit Kamal Fakeer Shaikh. As a matter of respect to women, it is widely believed that even dacoits in Sindh bow their heads before the women and never allow gang-members to insult them. Paro Chandio, a renowned dacoit during General Zia's time, was well known for his treatment of women. He held them in the samerespect as that of a mother or sister. He also helped finance several poor families with their daughters' marriages.
In the Kashmore kidnapping incident all the Muslim women were released but the two young Hindu women of Thul were kept in the panahgah (hiding place). The Sukkur divisional administration during the time, reportedly intervened and 'pressurized' the then PML MPA Sandra Saleem Jan Mazari and Chief Sardar Sunder Khan Sunderani who went into the forest for the girls' recovery.
"The Hindu women were freed after paying a heavy ransom," an insider disclosed. This was the first ever incident of its kind in the history of such dacoities, that have taken place in Sindh and they caused anguish to the Hindu community throughout Sindh. "I have only one remorse and feel guilty that those women were kept in my hiding place," confessed Kamal Fakeer, who was arrested recently in Thatta district. While talking to local reporters he exposed that it was not him who kidnapped the women, but another gang had been responsible for the kidnapping and they had handed them over to him (Fakeer). After the frightening incident, many families opted to migrate to India to their relatives and many others left for Karachi, Hyderabad and Sukkur. "There are visa problems these days, but once they are resolved we will have no other alternative but to leave," said Kishan Laal, general secretary Hindu panchayat, Jacobabad. He alleged that it is the sardars who foster these dacoits and criminals. "But the locals and neighbours are our friends and they are there with us in trying times,"he maintained. "Cases of robberies and kidnappings have increased nowadays," said Babu Maheesh, president of the Hindu community and a businessman. "The administration and police are cooperating with us but we still face great difficulties." He said everyone suffers from the difficult situation of law and order in these parts of the district but the Hindu community has beenparticularly targeted.
There is a need for mutual support and understanding of the local influentials if peace is to prevail otherwise the situation could worsen.
Non-Graduate Parliamentarians
Condition of graduation may hit heavyweights
KARACHI, Jan 25: The condition of graduation for contesting in the national and provincial assemblies' elections will put a large number of politicians in Sindh out of the political arena.
Although the decision has been welcomed by people from all walks of life, except the urban-based political parties including the Muttahida Qaumi Movement and Jamaat-i-Islami, almost all the leading political parties, including the PPP and the PML, have criticized the government's decision.
According to the PPP, there is no guarantee that a graduate member of the parliament will be a sincere representative of the masses than a non-graduate.
A spokesman for the party, citing examples of the well-known social worker Abdul Sattar Edhi, asked how could he be a member of the assemblies after imposition of the condition, despite his being a renowned sympathizer of the people.
A Jamaat-i-Islami spokesman welcomed the decision but opined that the minorities would be the ultimate looser due to the restoration of joint electoral system and because of the condition of graduation to be a criterion for contesting the polls. However, lauding the decision, the spokesman said it should have been taken much earlier, as there must be some set standards for the public representatives.
"There is no match between the two members - the under-matriculate and the highly qualified one," he added.
A survey shows that besides the PPP stalwarts, the graduation condition will put a large number of independent politicians in Sindh in an awkward situation.
The political bigwigs of Thatta - Eijaz Ali Sherazi and the incumbent Nazim of Thatta, Shafqat Ali Shah Sherazi, more than two-time elected MNAs Babu Ghulam Hussain Memon and Ghulam Qadir Malkani - will not qualify the condition, while the heavyweight and the ever-winning candidate from Dadu, Kotri and Sehwan, Malik Asad Sikandar is also a non-graduate.
According to observers, Malik Asad Sikandar will suffer more as his brothers are so young that he will have to place his friend Pir Bux Khaskheli in the forefront.
Twice-elected MNA from Dadu, Haji Mohammad Bux Jamali, is too a non- graduate politician.
Sardar Babul Khan Jakhrani, Agha Ghulam Ali Buledi, Sardar Sher Mohammad Bijarani, Hakim Ali Sundarani, Sundar Khan Sundarani, Mehran Bijarani and Ali Nawaz Shehlani - the heavyweights of Jacobabad district - are also non-graduates, leaving the political field open for Sardar Manzoor Panhwar, Naseer Khoso, Muqeem Khoso, Saleem Jan Mazari, Mir Hazar Khan Bijarani, Eijaz Jakhrani, Sudham Chand and Mir Hassan Khoso to show their muscles.
The political field in Shikarpur district is also open for the new-comers as the bigwigs of the district, Sardar Himmat Kumario, Babul Khan Bhayyo, Moulana Abdullah Pahor and Siraj Shah Amroti, are reportedly non-graduates. The linchpin of election politics of Ghotki district, Sardar Ali Gohar Khan Mahar, is also a non-graduate, while Ahmed Yar Shar, Raheem Bux Bozdar and Mian Mitho also do not qualify the new condition.
A similar situation is being witnessed in district Sukkur as Ghulam Mustafa Bozadar, Maulana Murad Halejvi also fall in the list of non-graduates.
Come to the Khairpur district, where Abdul Qadir Jeelani, Bashir Bhaban, Faqir Bakht Heesbani, Mohammad Ali Bhaban and Pir Gul Shah also fall in the category of non-graduates, clearing the way for Qaim Ali Shah, Ghous Ali Shah, Zafar Bilal, Javed Shah, Pervez Ali Shah, Naeem Kharal, Manzoor Wassan, Sadruddin Shah and Raja Sain to continue their politics without any hurdles.
The hard-boiled and time-tested politicians of Mirpurkhas and Tharparkar districts - Noor Mohammad Shah Jeelani, Mir Hayyat Talpur, Khair Mohammad Bhurgari, Ghulam Mohammad Khaskheli, Ghulam Mohammad Lat, Gul Mohammad Memon, Jadam Mangrio, Arbab Amir Hassan, Arbab Ataullah, Syed Mardan Shah - also do not qualify the condition.
The Jatoi family of Naushehro Feroze seems to be lucky as all the active political figures of the area, including Ghulam Mustafa Jatoi, his sons and nephew are educated. Syed Zafar Ali Shah, Murad Ali are also highly-educated personalities of their constituencies, while Rahmatullah Beehan and Raza Mohammad Dahri are reportedly non-graduates.
Ghafoor Nizamani, Bashir Halepoto and Mir Allah Bux Talpur of Badin district also fall in the list of non-graduates, paving the way for Fahmida Mirza and other new-comers, while Abdus Sattar Bachani and Latif Mangrio are also non-graduates.-PPI
